Not Vouvray, and that's OK.

Creamy. Lemon curd. So bright, with an underlying richness. Fantastic

Gold in the glass with very little aroma at first. As it warmed lemon curd, ripe pear and lanolin notes flowed. The central core of this 3 year old Chenin is structure, weight, and smooth as silk creaminess. Beautiful acid/ fruit balance at this stage; the wine improved as it warmed. Left me wanting more. One of the single best price for quality wines in California, if not the world. Hats off, Tegan. Every bottle rocks!

Waxy, creamy, citrus, mineral, lemon curd, honey and banana. Missing something mid-palate, including acidity, but still refreshing.

Pale gold color; fruit on nose with slight smokiness; juicy apple and white peach on taste; slight bitter woodiness lingers on finish, a bit of lemon rind or tree bark. Good acid. Medium finish. Delicious and nuanced. Light but with loads of flavor. Really like this, and I think it’s really improved since the first bottle opened in 2016. Eager to see how it tastes in a few more years.

Nice contrast between the bright and tropical Bevan vs the creamy Sandlands. Both get a 9.0!

One of, if not the best value label for all wines. My favorite Chenin for the $.
